07.01.2013 | 不復當年

[Volume 8 Issue 1, #1648]
來到新嘅一年第二個星期, 相信大家都已經由持續嘅慶祝活動回歸平常生活喇.. 大家盡情狂玩狂歡狂飲狂食啦嘛?? 聖誕嗰日做咗人生最瘋狂嘅一件事, 就係學人去食「浦飛馬拉松」!! 即係以一個價錢, 由中午12點, 無限次食自助餐, 食到夜晚10點!! 聽落好抵好吸引, 但係呢一次真正令自己體會到咩叫做「不復當年勇」, 其實唔係食咗好多嘢, 但係就開始覺得好飽喇.. 雖然我仍然好喜歡浦飛, 但係不得不認老喇, 與其辛苦自己, 倒不如以同樣價錢食啲比較精緻嘅嘢.. 人老咗, 就要懂得「貴精唔貴多」呢條道理喇~~ :)
it's the second week of the new year, i guess everyone should have already gone back to normal life after all the celebrations.. so how were all your celebrations and feasting?? the craziest things i did on christmas day was going for the "buffet marathon"!! meaning with one single price, we are allowed to have unlimited times of buffet from 12pm till 10pm on the same day!! sounds interesting and worth the money, but i rather think this time is the time i really felt i am not capable of eating as much as i (think i) could, though not really ate a lot i already felt my stomach bloated.. though i still like having buffet, i cannot deny the aging process and why not use the same money to have something more fine than to make myself suffer?? as we grow older, i guess we should start to appreciate what is "quality over quantity".. :)

  1. Ah yes!!! I am!!! Buffet? No, thank you...I used to be able to go at least 5 or 6 rounds before going for the desserts. These days, one round already kaput...not worth it considering the price one has to pay. How much did you pay for your buffet? Must have cost a bomb - Christmas some more...but never mind, you're so rich! Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

  3. I like to eat buffets though I won't over eat. I just loved to have a small bite of everything that fancied my eyes. The maximum is just 2 plates.

    2. I like buffets too, but because I'm a small eater I don't want to waste my money for it. I had those delish and expensive buffets for less than 10 times only.

      But if I get free treat for buffet, why not :D

      Delete
    3. I personally do not like buffetts. The spread may be nice but sometimes the patrons aren't.

      I hate jostling with people who seems they haven't eaten in 10 days! o.O

      Maybe I'm too fussy lah.

      But I like the real concept of a buffett. Sampling all sorts of food in one spread. A little bit of each. Not gorging on food and piling them up in your plate and then left uneaten.

      Delete
    4. me too .. I don't really fancy buffet.
      normally they will average out the food..
      from very expensive to cheap food..
      so normally I just take 2~3 plates..
      last time when i was younger .. I will wallop at least 10 rounds..

      Delete
    5. i like buffet la if go with a bunch of friends. Dont know why i feel buffet food not that jice but because of group of friends cahtting then makes the food feel nicer to eat.

      now buffet so mahal. one person alsready RM100. Sigh...what to do....

      last time can get buffet for rm30 now no more this song to sing jor

      Delete
    6. Now it's like printing money la, these outlets wiht buffets. Charge so expensive and people still go.

      So many rich people around.

      Remember Anay taking his office staff to Shangri-La for buka puasa? Habis $$$$

      Never invite us some more. wakaka

    7. Ya lor...go buffet never invite us also...some more he was saying the boss gave him a table for duno what function..tarak ajak us...sighhhhh

  4. I am curious where Thambee feasted whole day at this marathon? You should have brought laxative tablets to swallow in between so that you could poo them out and continue to eat. If cannot poo, can use chopstick to dig your throat dei. Wakakakaka

      Can sit there whole day without being bored. Can watch Astro on the go some more. Makan, play games, go toilet. Repeat process. ;p

    3. Donkey years ago when Steve Jobs have not introduced the forbidden fruit to the world, my friends brought laptop to the buffet session. Makan-makan, rest and play games, then continue to makan again.

    1. Well, buffet is really for those who have big appetite, like that only can worth the money.
      Hmm, I think always start with something light, then don't drink too much fluid first, then only move on to heavier stuff and dessert..

      Delete
    2. My records so far, maximum can survive 4 rounds of food, haha! I think consider quite a big eater for a lady hor? >.<

    3. Normally I feel quite satisfied right after the buffet meal cause I ate as much as I could in order to worth my money (haha very aunty-liked), but after that, feel super guilty and regret cause thinking of the weight gained =_=

    4. Ok now SK tell me, am I doing it the right way? I mean of what you have taught me in the email about leaving comments. =)

    5. SK sent Hayley love letter? Woah, I received warning letters from him but no love letter.

      He even taught the pretty mama how to upgrade to Princess of Spam. Nobody gives me guide one. I learned from trial and error.

      I'm very jealous now. Hmpf!

      Delete
    6. Ya lo! I am jealous. I am always number 3 or number 2, never at number 1 also. No one teach me how to do that.

      I went out fo home also I spammed SK's blog. I am such a die hard fan to him, but he also never wrote me any love letter to teach me how to do so. I go and sulk a the corner now.

      Delete
    7. me also received warning letters only leh :p

      me also cannot eat a lot at buffet. eat a bit a bit only. Last time kiasu wanna take a lot and eat but then cannot finish. Now i take a bit a bit. coz sometimes food in buffet not really that great. so try a mouthful first. if nice then go back take some more to eat

      Delete
  8. I had stomach upset for the past few days, didn't have the mood to eat and I watched out for my diet. When my appetite returned yesterday, I was so glad and went for heavy lunch. In the end, I suffered from over-eating and I felt so bloated, caused I got stomachache again!

    I'm old already, must eat small, many many times per day XD

    1. 10 years ago, I would be delighted to join your buffet marathon, SK~

      That time still young and metabolism rate was burning at the speed of a bullet train. The most now is, I can only take 2 plates, rest for 2 hours and start eating again.

  9. Buffet is interesting as it offers a wide variety of food. But I could only take a bit of each to make a plateful. I hardly go for second round.

    ReplyDelete
  10. woah!... mouthwatering!.. idk if i can still go for a second round

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just the theme of the makan also scares the crap out of me.

    It's a good marketing gimmick I suppose, but it also encourages gluttony.

    Aren't Malaysians battling with obesity as it is nowadays without the need to makan 12 hours? o.O

    I dunno lah, maybe I'm just a party pooper. ;p

    3. you are still young then you can eat a lot. wont affect your figure much as you digest faster but if older then will have to watch out. The older we are the "rounder" we became.

  21. I love buffet, because I can many types of food in small portion. After eating buffet, I feel very very guilty. So now, because of my mission, I try not to take buffet lunch or buffet dinner. Buffer breakfast still ok for me. Because I can skip the lunch and dinner if i take heavy breakfast.
